The client, Justin Scheetz, sought to build a new version of Booked Pro that not only looked better than the previous one but also included features that would give his product a competitive edge.
The objectives included:
- Overhaul the messy code of the existing plugin to build upon and add new features.
- Introduce innovative features to make the plugin more dynamic and user-friendly.
- Improve the aesthetic appeal of the plugin to attract more users.
Codup, with a team of talented developers, a project manager, and a QA person, embarked on the journey to revamp Booked Pro. The project was divided into multiple sprints, each with a clear scope of work and spanned across a few months.
The solutions included:
- Utilized React for the front end and PHP for the backend to build a robust and responsive plugin.
- Enabled admin to view customer bookings on a calendar and list view, and take actions like reschedule, cancel, and approve.
- Admin could add services for booking, set daily schedules, and create custom schedules for vacations and other unavailable dates.
- Implemented a drag-and-drop form builder for easy booking form creation.
Notification and Customer Management:
- Integrated extensive notification settings for admin to control notifications.
- Admin could view a list of customers, their details, and bookings, and also create a customer manually and book a slot for them.
The partnership between Boxy Studio and Codup resulted in the development of one of the top-selling booking plugins on the WordPress marketplace:
- The plugin was built from scratch with clean, maintainable code and dynamic features, enhancing its functionality and user experience.
- The added features and improved aesthetics gave Booked Pro a competitive edge in the WordPress plugin marketplace.
- The revamped plugin not only attracted more users due to its enhanced features and visual appeal but also contributed to increased sales.
With Codup’s expertise, Booked Pro transformed into a more dynamic, user-friendly, and visually appealing WordPress booking plugin, solidifying its position in the competitive market.
